HT stands for???
 
as title. thank you :)

As this is in the Tubes section my reply will be: High Tension. Tension is also known as voltage when we speak of electricity.

In other contexts it could be Home Theater or something completely different :devilr:

Sometimes Heater?
Seemed I've read some....

high voltage (or HV) would be a clearer term to use?

You could say so... And then you would also use the term Amperage in stead of Current?

I kinda like the term tension. That describes what we mean and not in which unit we measure what we mean.

But of course voltage is a very widely used term. But that doesn't make it any clearer, if you think about it :smash:

In Morgan Jones book Valve Amplifiers, HT (High Tension) is the term he used for the high voltage. LT (Low Tension) is for the heaters.

I guess what i'm saying is that the word tension has other meanings not related to electrical/electronics.

at least if you use "voltage", anyone into electrical/electronic DIY (even those who are just starting) would know what it is :)

heck even if you're not into DIY like my wife, she would understand if I use "voltage"

but that's just me :)

Well, the high tension lines hanging from the pylons meet both mechanical and electrical terms of phrase.

your normal DIYer would not deal with those though :)

"Tension" is a Britishism. You would never hear that term used in the US. But these are people who drink warm beer while (not "whilst"!) watching soccer.
